The updates and changes described here are specific to the U.S. market and may be different for other markets.
The 2019 Chevrolet Traverse continues to be offered as a full-size four-door crossover utility vehicle (CUV) with three rows of seating.
Like all second-generation units of the Chevy Traverse, the 2019 Traverse continues to ride on the long-wheelbase variant of the GM C1 platform (or “Chi”) shared with the following vehicles:
- 2018 and newer Buick Enclave (second generation)
- 2020 Cadillac XT6 (first generation)
Meanwhile, the short-wheelbase version of the C1 platform is used to underpin the following vehicles:
- 2017 and newer Cadillac XT5 (first generation)
- 2018 and newer GMC Acadia (second generation)
We also expect that the rumored future Chevy Blazer will ride on the same platform, expected for the 2019 model year. See more on the 2019 Chevy Blazer.
The 2019 Chevrolet Traverse is assembled by GM USA at the GM Lansing Delta Township factory in Michigan.
We expect the 2019 Chevy Traverse to follow the regular GM model year rollover sequence, and launch on or before the third quarter of calendar year 2018.
We expect that the current, second-generation Chevrolet Traverse will remain in production for at least the 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023 and probably the 2024 model years, and that an all-new, future Chevrolet Traverse will launch in the vicinity of the 2024 or 2025 model years.
